CameroonSince the mid-1980s, JSI has worked in Cameroon to improve systems across a range of health issues. Beginning with the USAID-funded Resources for Child Health (REACH) Program’s work to control acute respiratory infections, JSI has implemented and improved systems to prevent and treat HIV and AIDS, provide quality maternal and child health care, family planning and routine immunizations against common, life-threatening diseases. JSI has also worked to institute electronic medical records systems at HIV testing sites through the MTCT-Plus Data Management Center.
JSI is supporting and advancing community programs in more than 30 countries that seek to improve local health services, especially those related to family planning.
Trachoma, an infectious eye disease, is the world's leading cause of preventable blindness. JSI is providing technical and logistics support to the International Trachoma Initiative, to treat infected populations with azithromycin.
JSI managed a stockpile of outbreak response commodities, and provided procurement and distribution services to respond to outbreaks from avian flu to ebola worldwide and to pre-position supplies at regional and country levels for rapid deployment.
JSI’s ARISE project, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, identified and documented promising interventions leading to improved and sustained routine immunization system performance in sub-Saharan Africa.
AIDSTAR-One synthesized and disseminated scientific research and models of successful program implementation in all areas of HIV, and provided targeted technical assistance to build effective, sustainable programs.
